Most event marketers or exhibitors understand the importance of engaging
with their attendees. But what if you took the plural “attendees” and
started using only the singular form “attendee”? Imagine the impact your
event would have if you were able to put your focus squarely on each
individual person. One thing is certain: you would have a captivated, loyal
audience and the opportunity for a serious competitive edge.
With the help of touchscreen and intuitive interface technology, like the
solutions from MultiTaction®, it is getting much easier to give your
attendees the individualized attention they deserve.
MultiTaction builds touch display solutions that are both interactive and
intuitive. The intelligent surfaces use infrared cameras, which “see” what
is touching the screen. Their solutions support an endless number of
connected display screens, so it’s easy to scale big or small.
The technology also uses optical markers, which seamlessly recognize
objects placed on an interactive display table. These multi-source markers
may be fingers, hands, infrared pens or 2-D codes. Once a 2-D code is
recognized, relevant content – a video or additional product information,
for example – is served up to the user so they can interact with it via the
touchscreen. The technology even recognizes a nearly limitless number of
marker inputs, so multiple attendees can interact with the display
Another cool feature of this tech is that the markers can be placed on just
about anything, so it is easy to put your brand in the attendee’s hands –
literally. For instance, Glenfiddich, one of the world’s most awarded
single-malt Scotch whiskies,
coded scotch glasses
for an event. When attendees placed their drinks down on the interactive
“bar,” it would detect the type of whiskey and magically offer up pairing,
tasting and composition information.
GES had the opportunity to use the MultiTaction display at IAEE’s Expo!
Expo! 2016. Attendees were enthralled with this technology! It drew in
attendees and allowed them to interact in a fun and unique way with videos,
infographics and case studies.
The goal with any activation is to grab the attendee’s attention, make them
feel something that correlates to your brand message and leave them with a
lasting impression. MultiTaction displays are just one fun trend we are
seeing more and more at events and in exhibits.
